Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy is synthetically produced using chemicals and other substances such as caffeine, the active ingredient in over-the-counter cough syrup, amphetamines, PCP and even cocaine is sometimes added to or substituted for the amphetamines typically used to produce Ecstasy. The dose of MDMA in one tablet can vary from 12 mg all the way up to 131 mg, so the effects too can vary considerably.
  • A recent study suggests that because most children show some of the behaviors associated with so-called "ADHD" such as inattention and hyperactivity at times, it is crucial to determine whether this behavior is simply immature or exuberant or is actually associated with a disorder before medicating them with prescription stimulants which could put them in harm's way.
  • Methadone maintenance program patients in and individuals who are being prescribed methadone for pain in Canada are being warned about a new formula hitting the market in February of 2014 which is 10 times stronger than the current methadone formulation and could carry a higher risk of overdose.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehabilitation programs that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.
